WINTER MAGIC

These were taken by me from morning 'til night on

December 13, 2008

 

There are three pages and they include a lot more

than just around my house. There are frosted roads,

old barns, farms, Bushy Run battlefield, and a night

cruise on a big riverboat.

 

 

This day began and ended with a full moon. In the morning Joey, who'd spent the night, and I

went out on the front doormat and we each took pictures of the moon through the trees across

the street from my house.

 

 

Then on the other side of the house, dawn began. Unlike the day before, this Saturday was going

to be bright and clear, giving a whole different aspect to the snow.

 

 

Together, Joey and I watched the sun come up...

 

 

This is the railing of my little side porch

 

 

I took this one out the dining room window

 

 

Then when Jeff picked up Joey, I took another shot of the Felix Forest across from my house.

 

 

This is also out the dining room window

 

 

And the snowball grew into a snow oval overnight

 

 

Then Carl and I drove around our area, with him stopping the car so I could photograph what I

wanted. This is the barn just around the corner that I've photographed in all seasons.

See OLD BARNS for it in summer and autumn.

 

 

This one is just past the larger one above on Silvas Rd.

 

 

And this one is just past those...

 

 

This is the blue house across the road from the old barns above

 

 

Past the blue house, this is the forest on the south side of Silvas

 

 

And this is Silvas itself, which I also photograph endlessly. At the end down there, we turn

left usually to go to Laura's or for Carl's work, but today we turned right and went north a

little bit on Hilty.

 

 

Woods off the north side of Silvas

 

 

Heading north on Hilty for a while

 

 

It was such a great day to get out because the roads were ok and yet the snow still sat on

every twig. This is still Hilty.

 

 

Driving on Hilty it was almost too beautiful at times...like being sucked into a Christmas card

 

 

Still Hilty

 

 

Woods off to the east on Hilty

 

 

We'd turned around and headed south again and Carl stopped so I could get out and take

some pictures of this old brick silo by itself in the woods

 

 

 

 

Heading back south now on Hilty

 

 

Back now to the point where Silvas goes off to the east.

 

 

These are some of the big fields I love that we pass all the time on the way to either Laura's or

to Carl's work

 

 

If I'm going to Laura's I turn east on this road. This is the one with the big hollow tree that's in

other photo albums up here.

 

 

On Cline Hollow Road, I asked Carl to pull over so I could walk around near the old barn that I'd

photographed a lot in my OLD BARNS album...

This is looking up the hill just before the barn. I have this same picture in autumn.

 

 

 

 

Same bluebird house I photographed in autumn...
